A New Kind of Education

We live in a new era of education, one with multiple paths to employment after high school. Some students head straight into the workforce while others go on to four-year universities. Holberton Tulsa is a vocational school that exists for those looking for an alternative pathway to a fulfilling career.

Workforce Ready

Our programs are designed with Tulsa in mind. We communicate extensively with employers, local and national, to ensure that our course programs prepare students for the realities of the current job market. All of our programs are 20 months long on a trimester system. The first two trimesters are spent learning basic computer science skills and the latter three trimesters are focused on a specific field of study.

More Than Just Coding

We are, at our core, a software engineering school. However, this is more than just learning a single coding language. At Holberton Tulsa, we focus on ensuring that our graduates are prepared to succeed in their careers.

Technical Skills

  • Peer learning teaches students how to work within a team, look for resources and answers on their own, develop leadership skills, and leverage resources to solve problems.
  • Project-based education allows students to establish time-management skills, manage and work with teams, set and achieve realistic goals, and understand how to deliver on workplace expectations.

Building Relationships

  • Our students come from a wide variety of backgrounds, ages, and lived experiences. The diverse student population encourages engagement with new viewpoints and allows students to mentor and build each other up as they navigate this transition to a new career.
  • Working with other students builds a fantastic sense of community that many graduates cite as their favorite part of being a Holbie grad.

Professional Development

  • Our Career Services department helps students with everything from setting up a resume to negotiating for a higher salary.
  • Networking events put our students in conversation with employers, so they can get a better understanding of what the job market and life after graduation will look like before they enter the workforce.
